Lisa Parkes – Festival Producer

Lisa was the Tour Manager for The Royal New Zealand Ballet, in charge of making sure all the moving parts ran smoothly as she navigated the complex touring environment. She comes to the Trust with strong venue and industry relationships and a huge love of logistics involved in event delivery – both of which make her a great asset for the Operations Manager role.

She has international experience in comedy, working at Comedy Central in London, where she developed a deep respect for the hard work and vulnerability that goes into the art of comedy along with an awareness of the social and political power it holds.

Having also had a life time love affair with festivals as a patron, volunteer and most recently a judge at Wellington Fringe, she brings to the Trust and Operations Manager role 20+ years of office, events and project management experience.
